SATC 2, Sex and the City 2 Movie, Sarah Jessica Parker

If Sex and the City 2 filmmakers had actually paid $10 million for a designer wardrobe and then handed the whole blingy, precious mess over to its four already-wealthy stars, that would certainly sound pretty obscene.

But fashion insiders tell me that the report you're talking about probably isn't entirely accurate:

While the value of the clothes for Sex and the City 2 could easily reach $10 million, don't be shocked if filmmakers spent a few bucks less than that.

For one, a film like that is going to get a lot of designer stuff sent to its stylist, Patricia Field, for free.

The exposure is just too lucrative for a designer, particularly an up-and-coming one, to haggle over how much to charge.

Field is a legend in, well, her field, and I'm told by fashion PR types that, while some major designers may have charged for their pieces, don't be surprised if at least a few provided their wares gratis.

Now, if you're a SATC fan, you definitely do not want to hear what I have to say about the sequel in my new podcast:
